LYRICS

My best friend’s obsessive, and manic depressive,
And she makes lots of mistakes, but never learns any lessons.

And she cried on my shoulder, the last time we were together.
And said “I just don’t know how to make anything better”.

And I said I know that it’s tempting to regress on your goals,
In the medicine section of Essendon Coles.

But, just try.

Your boyfriend’s abhorrent,
But you still adore him.
Yeah, he treats like you like shit, but you’d still do anything for him.

And I said “I made my r-pist,
A Spotify playlist,
When I turned 18, as my own little birthday gift”.

And she said Jesus; I can’t believe the way that they treat us,
I wish they’d all take the time to walk a mile in my Adidas.

And, just try.

And I said, as long as you’re trying, that’s fine by me.
I’m just trying to save you from poison, Ivy.


I know that I’m changing,
And it might seem strange,
And yeah, I understand if you don’t want to call me my name.

Yeah, it makes me upset, but I try not to let it get to me,
I’ve adjusted to the fact you’ll probably never call me Ruby.

And, that’s fine.
But, just try.

And I said, as long as you’re trying, that’s fine by me.
I’m just trying to save you from poison, Ivy.
